The Closer I Get to You is the 5th track on my playlist, The Best R&B Ever. It features two of the most powerful and rich voices in the history of R&B. I can see this beautiful song being the featured track on a wedding playlist. The lyrics are perfect for a marriage ceremony or the main dance during the reception. The harmony of this duet symbolize the coming together of two people and the effortless blending of their lives. The vocals of this track are as smooth as silk. It’s the perfect example between people that can sing versus people that can sang. I included this song on the playlist because the harmony between Luther Vandross and Beyoncé is perfect, especially around the 4:00 minute mark.
Vote for your favorites. Or add your favorite, if you don’t see it here. The Best R&B Ever is a list of R&B songs that I consider to be the greatest of all time. The list is not in any specific order. However, my goal is to collaboratively create a playlist of R&B tracks that provide hours of listing pleasure. So, make sure you like, comment, and share.
